20 Tasty Hummus Recipes For Savory Snacking

20 Tasty Hummus Recipes

20 Tasty Hummus Recipes
In Arabic, the word “hummus” translates to “chickpea,” which, you know, makes sense. And darnit if I don’t love a good chickpea (or several – especially in hummus). Classic hummus is made with chickpeas, tahini, lemon, garlic, and salt, and it’s pretty extraordinary just like that. But did you know you can add all kinds of things to hummus to vary things up a bit? Or you can replace the chickpeas with other foodstuffs altogether? It’s possible. Hummus is your oyster. Or the world is your hummus. Either way, these 20 creative hummus recipes prove that the word “hummus” also translates to another word: “delicious.” It’s a fact.

    These are great for inspiration. I have so much produce right now from our garden that hummus is a must for getting it consumed before it goes bad.
